Debian Science

Goals

  • Provide to researchers and scientists better experience when using Debian.
  • Classify, package and distribute free software useful to science and research.
  • Support any quality efforts around free scientific software.
  • Manage the efforts when dealing with various implementations (MPI, BLAS, LAPACK...)
  • Maintaining the Debian Science Blend

How to use it?

  • You can use Debian Science perfectly as you are using Debian because it is a completely internal project and is nothing else than Debian itself. We just felt a need to found a team that works as a strike force for scientific software inside Debian.
  • #metapackages provide an easy way of installing a range of software appropriate to your particular field.

metapackages

The aim of the Debian Science metapackages is to provide a useful set of packages for someone working in a particular scientific field.

[1] Debtags are a means of classifying packages.

[2] RFP/ITP - Request for package / Intent to package - these are pseudo bugs that track which packages have been requested and whether someone is working on them.

[3] The list of bugs is a work in progress. It is not yet regenerated automatically, so may be out of date.

[4] The debian-science QA page at http://qa.debian.org/developer.php?login=debian-science-maintainers@lists.alioth.debian.org&ordering=3 provides additional information.

How to join

  • Debian Science has a mailing list debian-science. This mailing list should be used for general questions. And if you wonder why the mailing-list reply-to is set to the author instead of the list itself, read this.

  • The packaging team has also two mailing lists available on Alioth: debian-science-maintainers for general packaging discussions & debian-science-commits for commit notifications.

Contributing to Debian Science

General advice for helping Debian is available at http://www.debian.org/intro/help in addition to the DebianScience specific suggestions below.

Don't let the fact that you aren't a Debian Developer put you off - there are still lots of useful things you can do to improve the scientific software in Debian. A list of #efforts being undertaken is below.

How Non Debian Developers can help

  • Propose new scientific packages from sponsoring.
  • Test the software and provide informative bug reports. See http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/bugs.html for one view on how to report bugs effectively

  • Sometimes bugs are difficult to reproduce - you can help by reproducing them and providing test cases.
  • Send patches that fix bugs to the bug tracking system.
  • Translations
  • Add debtags to classify packages. See http://debtags.debian.org/

How Debian Developers can help

  • NMU bug fixes.
  • Sponsor package uploads.
  • Package useful software.
  • Encourage upstream authors to release their software with a free license. DebianScienceSampleLetter may be useful for this.
